How would you like to join an elite group of forward-thinking Startups that have the potential to be the change leaders of tomorrow?
Well, this is your chance, thanks to our pals over at Radix, who have come up with a unique way to provide support to high-potential startups. Startacus likes the sound of that!
The Startup League
The Startup League is an initiative created by Radix, a new TLD registry for domain extensions like .tech, .online, .space and .store and more. The team have created The Startup League to support startups using domains on their extensions, with the intention of providing essential marketing aid.
Every Startup that becomes a member of the league will have access to some really useful perks including things like;
It is really important that startups are able to find the right name for their business and this is often one of the first key steps towards effective brand marketing. However, this is becoming ever more difficult feat, with many startups forced to settle for a mediocre name on an irrelevant extension.
New domain extensions like the ones offered by Radix, give a brand the opportunity to choose and hold on to the product name that defines it. Memorable and relevant domain extensions resonate with customers and help startups to overcome the common problem of naming and positioning.
This is all part of a major shift which is happening in the online sphere. Increasingly people and businesses are moving away from ‘traditional’ and ‘old-school’ domain extensions, towards more relevant and distinctive ones. In recent times major brands such as Consumer Electronics Show and VIACOM have adopted the .TECH extension whilst well-known individuals have also opted for more appropriate extensions as well- Edward Snowden being a prime example with FREEDOM.PRESS. Infact, Radix is seeing 8 new domains registered every 30 seconds.
The Startup League Programme will help to ensure that high-potential, trailblazing startups on these domains will be given a significant support and marketing boost.
Any startup that has an active official website on one the following domain extensions is eligible to apply:
If you are a member of the Startacus community you can use the code STARTACUS to get standard domains on any of the above domain extensions at $1.99 here (or type domains.register.website/startupleague).
Some great startups are already in the league!
